(nat pop) a hockey playoff win. (nat pop) the evansville thunderbolts downed the macon mayhem two to one ... asserting themselves from the very minute the game started. (nat pop) "you gotta do that in playoff hockey." "all levels of playoff hockey it's a hard work series. you've gotta wear them down ... even though it's only a three game series. it's all about getting to the net and getting to those dirty areas and i think we did that." and that intensity made it feel like playoff hockey. (nat pop) "it's way better ... when you get more people in the barn ... and everyone is excited ... it gets you going and you get energy you didn't know you had. i think it showed in those first few periods ... we were all over them." thunderbolts head coach jeff pyle got on the players all week about playing hard, smart ... and not making mistakes on defense. the team responded by out-shooting the mayhem 44 to 17 ... and limiting the mayhem to one goal at the end of the game with an extra attacker. "we have a lot to prove ... we were an expansion team last year we didn't do well ... we missed the playoffs ... and bottom line we had to prove to ourselves how good we were ..." "... 18 to four in shots in the first period ... 44 to 17 for the game ... so we did our job ... we missed some opportunities ... but i think we're ready to grow and get get better and better every game." now the team hopes to take this intensity to macon ... where the thunderbolts can close out the series in game two. "it's a best of three so that ... "... first win is huge. we need to go out there with that same mentality we had today ... and step it up even more ... to be able to get that second win." but no matter the outcome of the season ... the team will always remember the crowd that came out to support their first playoff win (nat pop) ... and the feeling of getting the monkey off their back.
